Festival hairstyles: the fishtail braid vs. wavy hair

Festival season is here! And no, it's not only the music that counts: whether it's for outdoor films or food trucks, your festival look is an important part of the overall ambiance. So, fishtail braid or loose waves?

Fishtail braid

The hairstyle

The fishtail braid, created using 2 strands instead of 3, is also known as the "mermaid braid " thanks to its length. It's often worn swept over one shoulder to really showcase the style's romantic texture.

The style

This relaxed hairstyle is decidedly chic and perfect for adding a put-together, yet bohemian, vibe to your ensemble. You can even play with volume and texture depending on your natural hair type!

What the editors say

Even though boxer braids are the hottest braid trend of the moment, we think the fishtail is a great choice for summer.

Waves

The hairstyle

Whatever the length of your hair, loose waves allow for plenty of volume and movement. They add an ultra-feminine and easygoing vibe to any look.

The style

Whether you prefer salt-soaked beach waves or flaves, this textured style is a must-try for summer. You can even dress your waves up with a romantic flower crown to really celebrate the summer season!

What the editors say

This year, don't hesitate to let your hair move freely as you dance to the music of your favorite band. And who cares if your hair gets a little tousled – the bedhead looks is always a plus for a truly bohemian look!
